One last look at 1986, no seriously I mean it.
One of our former writers, Mikey J, actually passed along this YouTube video a few years ago and every year around this time, I get a kick out of watching it again.
In this clip, as the Mets get ready to take on the Red Sox in the World Series, Lenny Dykstra and Roger McDowell make a 10 minute stop at MTV Studios where they get interviewed by vee-jay Martha Quinn who is rocking her bright orange Mets t-shirt,
The video also features the video “Let’s Go Mets Go” about half way through, but hearing these guys talk is by far the best part.
Lenny Dykstra even gives early indications of what his post-playing career might be like and admits “I even like cheating a little sometimes if that’s what it takes.” That comes in the second half the clip, long after he puts his moves and works his charm on Martha Quinn.
Roger McDowell is as goofy as ever and he just cracks me up whenever I see this clip.
Anyway, enjoy the video…..it’s as close to a Mets World Series as you’ll get this October.
